Pedigree has initiated a voluntary recall on three varieties of its Weight Management canned dog food products due to a potential choking risk. Cans of this product may contain small pieces of blue plastic, which broke off a conveyor belt during the production process.
Pedigree has identified the source of the plastic and the issue has been resolved. Pedigree is encouraging consumers who have purchased affected product to discard the food or return it to the retailer for a full refund or exchange.
